Intense, relentlessly horrifying, disgusting and often implausible, but surprisingly intriguing at times.

the best entry in the series since Saw II.

This script, by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, has a more lyrical bent, and a more satiric bite, than any of the other Saw sequels.
| Original Score: 2/5

A triumph (a very relative triumph) for two reasons: first, it is not so confusing as Saw IV, and second, it is not so sleepy and wholly pointless as Saw V.

Michael Moore would have a field day with this latest installment, where the writers tackle the health care system with Jigsaw as an answer.

The usual critiques apply: terrible acting, zero suspense, laughable logic and the promise of another one next year.

Who can expect something worthy of good reviews after the sixth installment? That said, I'm assuming the creators of Saw walked into the movie deciding, 'We're going to make a stupid, gory movie and everyone will watch it because it's Halloween!'

In what was originally slated to be the final chapter, the latest installment keeps the traps interesting but leaves the back story running thin.

A film so frighteningly familiar it could well be called Saw It Already.

The tension missing from recent installments is back, thanks to an inventive narrative that manages to tie up the ever-evolving saga's loose ends.

Well, I guess there's something more frightening than life-threatening, mutilating 'games' you're forced to play as you struggle to remain alive. And that, of course, is the state of health care in the United States.

The tawdry use of important real-life social issues in the service of what amounts to nothing more than another exercise in malignant sadism makes this picture even worse than earlier episodes.

While the social commentary is as shallow as ever, the film's overall quality is better than the last two installments. That isn't saying much, but it's something.

Saw VI plays like the last gasp for relevance of a heavy-metal series that has not only gone regurgitation-rusty but seems lacking much of a will to live.

Headache-inducing, and featuring one of the worst D-movie performances of the aughts from Costas Mandylor, the latest "Saw" franchise addition is more of the same torture-punishment-rehab-porn audiences have come to expect.

Revenge of the uninsured in this health insurance horror, and we're not talking medical malpractice. While death panels and death penalties alike abound in this surgical slasher spree without benefit of anesthesia, and that goes for the audience too.

...one of the best and most fascinating in the series.

In the sixth installment the series gets political, pointing a finger at the health care system.

Sixth film in revenge series is just as bloody as the rest.

The Saw series long ago cannibalized its cleverest bloodbath gimmicks, but now it's figured out a new way to torture us: by taking a barb-wire stab at political relevance.
